Frank Gehry is MasterClass’s latest well-known instructor, Via Dezeen
Frank Gehry will teach an architecture and design course for online education platform MasterClass, sharing his creative process and offering critique on student work.
For $90 (approximately £72), Gehry’s MasterClass will include 15 video lessons tutoring students on his architectural philosophy by using case studies, sketches and models.
A downloadable workbook with recaps and assignments accompanies each class. Students will also be able upload their own videos to get feedback from the rest of the group, with Gehry critiquing select works.
Gehry’s masterclass, which will begin in spring this year, will also give a glimpse into his never-before-seen model archive.
“When you build a building, any building, start with the simple block model to see where that goes,” says Gehry in a promotional video for the course.
“As an artist, I got constraints, gravity is one of them,” he continues. “But within all those constraints I have 15 per cent of freedom to make my art.”
“I’m always trying to express movement, I was fascinated with the fold so basic to our first feelings of love and warmth. These ideas are scary as hell to tell to the client, they can reject you and they will. But create the logic for it as you go, stretch it into another place.”
